Susanne Eman & Donna Simpson Compete for "Fattest Person Ever"

Last week we text-underline:none"> told you about Susanne Eman (left), the Arizona mother who is attempting to eat her way to becoming the fattest person in history. She already tips the scale at 728-pounds on her way to her goal of 1,600 pounds.
